Construction of a new hall for the students of Jagannath University (JnU) will start in January in Keraniganj, university authorities have said.
The announcement came through a press release issued by the university on Monday night.
A formal contract will be signed with the Thermax Group after the Eid for constructing a 10-storey hall for 1,000 students at JnU’s own ground in Keraniganj.
On Monday night a meeting was held between JnU authorities and members representing the Thermax group.
JnU Vice-Chancellor Mijanur Rahman and Thermax Group Chairman Kadir Molla were present during the meeting.
After its upgradation to university from college, JnU students had been demanding residential halls for the last seven years.
Earlier this month, the students began a movement demanding demanding construction of a residential hall in the spot where previously Dhaka Central Jail was situated on Old Dhaka's Nazimuddin Road.
In 2012, Thermax Group introduced a bus for the JnU students coming from Narsinghdi.
While handing over the key to the bus, the company's Chairman Kadir Molla promised to construct two halls for the university's male and female students, if the institution could provide its own land.
